The devt of Mozilla products relies upon community involvement and contributionWe collaborate on a global basis to ensure everyone can be informed contributors and creators of the web. This act of human collaboration across an open platform we believe to be essential to individual growth and our collective future.
So in Mozilla, other than the devt of products to drive innovation in the Internet, as a non-profit, we have our community building aspects.. We create projects and programs to keep the web open. We have contribution areas, so yung mga enumerated ditto na areas, for contributors and if you want to level up being a contributor, dun na yung Mozilla Reps.
You might be curious why Mozilla, a “tech company” cares about web literacy. Well first of all, Mozilla is a non-profit org. so yun ang unique sa Mozilla, nowadays kasi if we talk about tech anong unang naiisip? Di ba ‘magkano’? Mozilla doesn’t really care about delivering profit. We just want to keep the web open for all because we love the web and we believe in its potential.
This campaign in in line with the Maker Movement, that is to show that companies are not the ones who feed us with tech, show that we can also take part in making.
Coding is just the tip of the iceberg "Coding is just the tip of the iceberg," he said. "This is about full-scale digital literacy. How to build things with code, design and video and photography. And there are a set of creative, social and cognitive skills -- participation, design thinking. These are the skills you need to find your way in the digital world." We came to the conclusion that just building products with the values of the open Internet were not enough," he said. "We want the billions of people on the Internet to know how it works to get the most out of it."

Why does Mozilla care
about Web literacy?
“[O]ur world changed in April 1993 when the Mosaic
1.0 browser was released to the general public. We
need new forms of education. We need to reform our
learning institutions, concepts, and modes of
assessment for our age. Now, anyone with access to
the World Wide Web can go far beyond the passive
consumer model to contribute content on the Web. We
can customize and remix, alone or in collaboration
with others, located anywhere on the Web.
That Do-It-Yourself potential for connected,
participatory, improvisational learning requires
new skills, what many are calling new “literacies”.”
Mozilla understands web
literacy to be the skills and
competencies required to read,
write and participate effectively
on the web
We're a global community
dedicated to teaching digital skills
& web literacy.
We explore, tinker & create
together to build a web that's
open & made by everyone.
